Good day, sweet people! I hope this post finds you well. Every Sunday, I share my words of wisdom about nourishing your life. This Sunday, I’m sharing special words from a Nelson Mandela quote. He once said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” In this post, I’m going to share what that means and how this connects to our belief system.
Recently. I was trying to finish a project and I kept coming against a brick wall. The more I thought about it, the more it seemed impossible. I’m sure you experience this in your life. There may be a project or a task that you want to finish and it seems virtually impossible. Every turn you take, it seems like you hit a big brick wall. At this point you have two options, either give up or keep pushing. What did I do in this scenario? I stumbled upon the words of wisdom by Nelson Mandela that reminded me to keep pushing.
It is so very true that something will seem completely impossible until it is actually complete. As the person who is trying to complete the task, it is your job to work through tough times. It is your job to see all the possibilities despite how difficult it may be. This can be extremely hard especially when you are facing frustration and doubt. However, this quote tells us that the toughest part of the task is getting out of our own heads.
When you are ready to achieve your biggest goals, it will not be easy. There will be times when you will want to give up. You will have thoughts that make you feel as if you should stop. But, these words of wisdom suggest that you should push through.
So how do I push through when things seem impossible? First, I stop what I am doing and I take a break. If I am at the point of a brick wall, or I am stuck, then I need to look at it when I am calm. Next, I take the time to come down. When I am calm, I review everything up until that point. Last I think of alternatives until I find a conclusion to my problem. The most important part of the process is to check my beliefs. If I think something is impossible, then it will be.
What we believe truly effects our outcomes. If you believe something is impossible it will be. Changing that thought, and reminding yourself that you know the solution makes you task possible again. These words of wisdom tell us that something is impossible if we allow it to be. What impossible tasks have you overcome lately? Share in the comments below as well as like and share the wisdom.
Until next time…
